The Independence processes of Greece And Colombia: Topics and possibilities of comparison

Luis Alfredo De la Peña

Abstract


This paper will use a comparative approach to examine the Colombian and Greek revolutions. Despite the spatial distance between the two, their contemporaneity establishes a platform which showcases their concordances. Perhaps the most essential similarity is the nature of both conflicts: post-Napoleonic wars, largely waged with irregular warfare using both human and economic resources, indoctrination of combatants and the presence of geographical obstacles. Performing this comparison is important because it helps uncover correlations between the cases that can inform our understanding of an important period of global history and construct a more cohesive narrative of events hitherto neglected by global scholarship.
